    • Abstract


      ‘‘Experiments with Drosophila for biology courses’’ (published by Indian Academy of Sciences, Bengaluru, in March,2021; ISBN: 978-81-950664-2-1; Free Access under Creative Commons License: CC BY-NC-SA 4.0; https://www.ias.ac.in/public/Resources/Other_Publications/e-Publications/018/Experiments_with_Drosophila_for_Biology_Courses.pdf?v=1.2) is a unique effort where active Indian researchers/faculties have collated routinely employedresearch laboratory protocols in the form of teaching exercises for undergraduate and post-graduate students of lifesciences. The overall aim is to provide essential hands-on learning and training exercises which can excite students tothink rationally and to develop the art of scientific judgment and analysis. It is envisaged that this compilation willserve to catalyse a paradigm shift from the classical approach of teaching so that students can employ new methods toask simple, pertinent scientific questions in diverse fields of biological sciences ranging from classical genetics/cytogenetics, to cell and development biology, modelling human diseases, ecology and behaviour, etc.
